Home 2012, The Second Season Escapees Boot Camp and Rally, Sedalia MO
navTitle titleBarWhite

This was 8 days of intense learning. The Boot Camp was the first 3 days, non stop lectures and information overload. By the end of the third day, we needed a holiday, but the rally started the next day. That was 5 days of various lectures and seminars, but we were able to pick and choose which we wanted to attend. I went to mostly technical seminars. We were so busy, I have no pictures to show, but you can read all about Boot Camp at the Escapee Web site. I just wish that we had attended a Boot Camp before buying a rig and truck. It would have saved us a lot of time and energy. From the schedule below, you can see it was a very intense 3 days.
